JMS Multisites extend joomla with Multi Sites and user sharing. This allows multiple domain names or sites to have their own joomla configuration file using the same joomla installation. Starting with Jms Multisite version 1.3.77, it is also not only compatible with Joomla 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5, 3.x but also partially compatible with Joomla 4.0.

- Those working files need to be contributed to Joomla, or checked in if the person doing the integration work has privileges for that. The working files need to be accepted by Joomla, and a Zip archive with the files needs to be built and placed wherever Joomla places downloads.
- On certain platforms, such as Microsoft IIS, the private key is not immediately visible to you but the server is keeping track of it. Installation Instructions. Install on your Server. Before you can add SSL to your Joomla site, you’ll need to install the certificate on your server and you’ll need to remember its IP address.
What is SSL/TLS?
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is the successor to Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) - although most people still refer to it as SSL in blog posts. Ever noticed the lock sign next to the URL when your browsing the internet? That means that all the data you send to that website is being sent encrypted so anyone who may have hacked your network (or similar) and can intercept your requests is unable to view any of the data - they can only see what URLs you are accessing.
Why Use TLS?
Google (and most other search engines) now treat sites using https with preference. Furthermore many browsers flag any website with a form (such as a login or contact form) that isn't using https
How do I setup TLS?
For setting up the certificate, the simplest way is to get your host to do it for you.
The correct certificate to buy depends on the security protections required on your website. If you don't know then probably the cheapest and easiest option is to use Let's Encrypt - it's free and depending on your host can be often be configured straight from your cpanel or plesk hosting dashboard.
If you've bought a Dedicated IP and SSL certificate, simply ask your host to help and they will get it signed and install it in the correct location for you.
How do I redirect all my traffic to https
The easiest way to enforce https traffic is to do it within Joomla. In Global Configuration there is a 'Force HTTPS' option which allows you to force HTTPS either in the Administrator area only or for the entire site. You'll pretty much always want the latter.
More complex .htaccess Examples
As an example, to switch from HTTP to HTTPS on any page that has 'abc/def' or 'ghi' in the URL, add something like this:
... and to switch from HTTPS back to HTTP on any page that has 'home' or 'help' in the URL, do something like this:

If you want to force SSL on a specific folder you can insert the code below into a .htaccess file placed in that specific folder:

Make sure you change the folder reference to the actual folder name. Then be sure to replace www.example.com/folder with your actual domain name and folder you want to force the SSL on.
